NIBS Annual Conference 2019

Harbin, China
May 8-10, 2019

The 2019 NIBS Annual Conference will be held at Heilongjiang International University, in Harbin, China. Only two hours from Beijing by air, or eight hours by bullet train, the city is easily reached from virtually anywhere in the world.

Harbin (population: 10.6 million) is the capital of Heilongjiang province, and China’s eighth most populous city.  It first prospered as a region inhabited by immigrants from Russia—an influence that can still be seen today. The city is the largest in northeastern China, and the region’s most significant cultural, industrial and business centre.

Heilongjiang is China’s base for the production of commodity grain, thanks to the rich soil in surrounding areas. The area also boasts a diverse industrial economy, with a strong presence in textiles, medicine, food, aircraft, automobile, metallurgy, electronics, building materials, and chemicals.  Hydro and thermal power equipment manufactured in the area makes up one-third of the total installed capacity in China.

Calls for Contribution

Poster Session We know there is a wealth of excellent practice, research and innovation which supports internationalisation amongst our member schools. We would like to take this opportunity to invite members to share their projects in a poster session which will open after the David Gillingham Award presentations and then run for the duration of the conference.  Posters should be A0 size and text should be at least font size 12. Posters can be printed locally in Harbin, but they must be submitted by 30 April 2019. Delegates who do not submit at this point are responsible for bringing their own printed poster.

Presentation Session In addition to the poster sessions we are also inviting members to present and share internationally orientated research and educational innovations. The sessions will be 30-45 minute parallel sessions offered to delegates.

If you are interested in presenting a poster or running a presentation session please contact Lara Martin by 20 April 2019 at the latest to reserve a place, places are limited, so we are working on a first come, first served basis.
